Letting my 3 year old daughter see her grandfather for the first time?
This really is for advice for me. I have not seen my father in many years. Three years ago, my father found out that I had a baby through a cousin of ours. He then contacted me through facebook congratulating me as well as apologized for the long estrangement. We have been speaking via facebook for the past three years and now is asking to see his granddaughter. I was never very comfortable around my father growing up and I will probably feel even less comfortable seeing him now after not seeing him for close to 9 years. I am not sure how to respond to him wanting to see us. I personally have no interest in seeing him, but to deny him seeing his granchild would crush him. At the same time, he has done many things in the past to hurt me and I am not sure I can ever forgive him. I have a lot of pent up anger towards him. This whole situation makes me feel very uncomfortable. He did take full responsibilty for everything he has done to hurt me. I'm just not sure I will ever be ready for this. Any advise is greatly appreciated.
